Tyrel, a Guelph Boy in need of help….

A 13 year old Guelph boy is seeking your help. Tyrel is patiently waiting for a kidney transplant. Guelph is known to be a caring community because we rally together for worthy causes such as Tyrel.

Friends are organizing a virtual 5km run/walk/bike to raise funds for Tyrel. The funds are needed to cover expenses such as  medication, transportation and tutoring. Learn more about how you can register for the event at https://www.facebook.com/runforteamtyrel.

There are nearly 1,500 people on the waiting list for an organ transplant in Ontario. Join Team Tyrel and promote organ and tissue donation in our community!

    Lifetime tutoring for free
    My sincere thanks go to Hon’ble City Mayor Karen Farbridge for bringing us the information about 13 year old Guelph boy who is seeking help. Tyrel is patiently waiting for a kidney transplant. I totally agree with the Mayor in her remarks that Guelph is known to be a caring community.I offer myself as a FREE TUTOR TO Tyler for his lifetime. I am already offering my volunteer services at Immigrant Services, Local Immigration Partnership,Action Read,Book shelf,Guelph and District Multicultural Festival and my blog http://www.24hscience.com among many more.But serving this child is a great honour for me and I will be thankful to GOD ALMIGHTY for giving me this opportunity.When I offer my services I request every Guelph citizen to participate in this noble cause.We should do everything to save the life of this child. I will request people to go on the facebook- Team Tyrel – Virtual 5K Run/Walk and participate. Apart from me there is another activity going for this noble cause. A 4-on-4 basketball fundraising tourney takes place in downtown Guelph on Saturday as the Shake True Hoops’ EARTHSHAKE tournament is set for the RBC parking lot on Quebec Street. Proceeds support Ball 4 All For Goodness Shake, an outreach program for at-risk youth designed to offer quality instruction at no cost to the participant. It will also support 13-year-old Tyrel Thomson, a member of the Shake True Hoops Ball 4 All program, who is awaiting a kidney transplant.
    The tourney starts at 9:30 a.m. Saturday Aug. 17. The rain date is Sunday Aug. 18.
